Automated Vertical Machines & Parts Trays Maximize Storage Space
This company drastically reduced their floor space by moving their parts inventory from bins on shelves to automated vertical storage units with large partitioned parts trays. The automated vertical storage machines take advantage of unused overhead space by storing trays over 20’ high, eliminating the need for workers to walk up and down aisles searching for parts. The partitioned tray’s advanced divider system allows more efficient compartmentalization to maximize storage compared to traditional plastic bins. The storage machines also eliminate wasted reach space and other wasted space inherent with bin shelving storage systems. The automated vertical storage units deliver trays to an ergonomic waist-high counter where a large number of parts can be easily viewed and picked. Having more parts available to the pick operator enhances productivity and accuracy. The result was a reduction in the storage floor space area by 94%. Parts picking productivity was improved by 70%, and stock outs and overstocking were virtually eliminated. The machine’s inventory management software further enhanced the company’s efficiency by providing real-time inventory counts and batch parts picking. Finally, the enclosed vertical storage units provided better security from pilferage through password access, as well as dust protection for parts.
